Iced Earth - Ten Thousand Strong lyrics

Anyone have the official lyrics to this song? I'm pretty sure I have them figured out but I wanna know for sure. Here's what I have gotten, but if you have the official ones, please correct mine.


We're gathering summoned by the eldar
The consequence of what's imminent
A prophecy dark and foreboding
Forces them to face humanitants

The children seek refuge in the mountains
Reluctantly they'll all but recognize
The sacrifice they must adhere to
The only hope for future Setian life

Like a martyr sacrifice...

Await the days of clouding
Earth mother sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of where they came
And those our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

What we possess mankind is after
Direct descendants of the architects
Children of god, seeds of creation
Stakes so high, we must never relent

We lie and wait, the human minds are clouded
Initiation of the master plan
Assimilate, build a life among them
Centuries will pass, patience will win

We are the pain of man...

Await the days of clouding
Earth mother sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know not of where they came
And those our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

The clouder's crying out in pain...

I don't know if it's 'clouding'. I always thought that it was "Await the days are coming" or something like that.

Well " The Clouding " is a track on the album about how they erased the memory of all the humans.

No one has the official lyrics yet?

Alright, I'll give this a go. First of all however, good job on the lyrics. I don't have much to add except a few lines I disagree with.

I think it's elder because in all three songs in the Something Wicked triology 'the elder' is mentioned. And I kind of think that it should be humanitas because to my knowledge there is no such word as "humanitants". The definition of humanitas doesn't quite fit in though...

"They know nought of where they came" just sounds gramatically better to me. I'm from sweden though and I haven't even spent a full day in an english speaking country, so I could be wrong about that.

When I listen to the song it DOES sound more like 'not' than 'nought', but I'm usually having difficulties hearing what Tim sings. I've decided to stick with 'nought' until the official lyrics prove me wrong though. :P

Personally I think it's 'We lie in wait'.

So the result from this should be:

We're gathering summoned by the elder
The consequence of what's imminent
A prophecy dark and foreboding
Forces them to face humanitas

The children seek refuge in the mountains
Reluctantly they'll all but recognize
The sacrifice they must adhere to
The only hope for future Setian life

Like a martyr sacrifice...

Await the days of clouding
Earth mother sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know nought of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

What we possess mankind is after
Direct descendants of the architects
Children of god, seeds of creation
Stakes so high, we must never relent

We lie in wait, the human minds are clouded
Initiation of the master plan
Assimilate, build a life among them
Centuries will pass, patience will win

We are the bane of man...

Await the days of clouding
Earth mother sharing in our pain
Erase the human memory
They know nought of where they came
And though our hearts are broken
We have to wipe the tears away
In vain they did not suffer
Ten thousand strong will seize the day

The clouder's crying out in pain...
We have to wipe the tears away...
The hearts are broken...
Ten thousand seize the day...
